Tuition reciprocity between states?

Hi all! I currently live in Wisconsin and I'm considering going to college out of state. Does anyone know which states have tuition reciprocity agreements with Wisconsin? Paying in-state tuition rates would make a huge difference. Thanks!

Hi there! Wisconsin does indeed have tuition reciprocity agreements, which allow you to pay in-state tuition or reduced rates at certain out-of-state colleges. The main agreement Wisconsin has is with Minnesota through the Minnesota-Wisconsin Reciprocity Program. This program permits Wisconsin residents to attend public colleges and universities in Minnesota while paying in-state tuition rates. Keep in mind that tuition reciprocity is applicable to public institutions, not private ones.

Another option is to consider schools that are part of the Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP). The participating states include Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Through MSEP, you won't necessarily pay in-state tuition, but the participating colleges will offer tuition rates no more than 150% of their in-state rates, which can still result in significant savings.

To take advantage of these programs, you'll need to apply for tuition reciprocity directly with the specific program and follow any deadlines and guidelines. Be sure to research the colleges you're interested in to see if they participate in either of these programs and confirm the exact tuition rates for out-of-state students. Good luck!
